1-48. The Universe sings a song of unimaginable beauty through the perfected conduit of your heart. Listen for it with a quiet mind.
The entire universe Sings to you, always. It is not a song of words, music or melodies that you can hear with your ears. It is a Song of Love and it is ever present and forever accessible to you at each and every moment. The overwhelming beauty and perfection of this Song of Love is so much more than can be described in words that to even attempt to encapsulate its transformative Perfection is without meaning or value. It is both utterly universal in its all-encompassing Glory as well as completely personal in how it will be perceived and Experienced by you. Each and every Child of God has a part to play in this Song. All of the Children of God are needed to complete the Song of Love. Some already Sing, perfectly and completely, adding their Soul’s voices to a chorus of Love that is all that every Child of God will ever need to know that they are Home. When they Sing, they do so by allowing their True Natures to be free, unrestricted by any belief in limitations, isolation, or separation. They rise from their hearts as the Perfect Children of God that they know and accept themselves to be, casting their Perfect Light out for all to see and Experience. This Song is much more than just the harmony of all that Lives celebrating Life. It is created and Experienced through the heart and it plays out in a nearly infinite variety of ways, offering only the gentlest kindness to all of the other Children of God. For what else could possibly be appropriate to offer to a Perfect Being of Love but Love Itself, recognizing its perfect reflection in another’s heart and expressing only the purest of Joy at the discovery that all of the Children of God are exactly the same and are equally, and utterly, only Love? To begin to hear this Song of Love, it is essential that you embark upon a journey of clearing out the multitude of illusions that appear to separate you from all that is forever True. To finally be ready to forever add your voice to the Song of Love requires perfecting the conduit of your heart so that no illusion can ever stand between you and all that is Real. In Truth, no illusion has this power to interfere with your part in the Song of Love. But if you use your Free Will to believe that it is possible for anything to stand between you and the Eternal Love of God, you will not be fully ready to join with God in the Chorus of Love. You may be ready to Sing at times, in spurts and flutters, fits and starts, now and again rising to the Perfection of the Mind of God but then dropping back down again into this world, so full of devious illusions and the mad gibberish of fear that the ego tries to use to drown out your voice. How then can you possibly rise above the cacophony of the ego’s lies to hear and participate in the Song of Love? It is essential to quiet your mind and allow it to rest. Your mind is constantly at work, processing information received from your senses and attempting to determine its import and importance. This process is not without value, though it generally only serves to keep your attention fully focused on the material universe. But this process of discernment and evaluation can be used for other work. To turn within and regard your thoughts as processes unto themselves can provide immense assistance with detaching from the reactive behavior the ego so desires you to engage in on a constant basis. Why would the ego wish this of you? Because the ego knows that if you are willing to regard your thoughts from a more open and enlightened perspective, you will become increasingly less attached to your thoughts and you will be less likely to react to them at the moment of their arising. This larger perspective, one in which all is accepted just as it is and judgment is laid down in favor of understanding that there is nothing to fear, is not at all what the ego wishes for you. The ego, an insane belief in the permanence of all that is physical, as opposed to an acceptance of mind as being the ultimate arbiter of reality, does not want to be found to be empty. But the ego knows that its center is fully devoid of any reality whatsoever. So it wishes you to ignore the power of your mind to choose and instead simply follow its mad dictates to their logical end, which can only be death and destruction. The ego knows nothing of Love, for it only sees fear. To begin to quiet your mind, accept your mind just as it is now. Seek not for change, quiet or stillness, for in these requests the ego will only scream louder and louder, attempting to drown out the awareness that is the core of all that Lives. All that is alive has awareness, limitless awareness without judgment and devoid of all desires to contemplate, evaluate or discern the meaning of all that occurs. Love accepts you just as you are, for Love knows that you are already Whole and that you lack for nothing. The ego lacks everything, for it is nothing at all and it cannot accept that it might be possible for Love to be all that is forever Real. To listen with a quiet mind is but to be still within yourself, accepting the constant ebb and flow of your thoughts without the need for attachment or even a belief that your thoughts necessarily have any intrinsic value. They do not, for they are but levels of understanding, layered upon an Experience of that which is forever Real. To Experience Love is to be Love. To hear the Song of Love is equally to add your voice to the Song, allowing your heart to open as a perfect flower, radiantly beautiful and forever complete, just as you were Created.
